On Monday 17th May, Birkdale Tower Lodge care home in Southport celebrated its first anniversary with festivities and fun planned throughout the day.
With the Lodge beautifully decorated with fresh flowers and black and gold balloons, residents had a fabulous day celebrating amongst friends, singing to their favourite music and tucking into a delicious array of canapés along with a glass of bubbly. The Lodge would like to thank one of their families & Rose Tree Tea Rooms in Southport for kindly providing a beautiful and delicious cake that everybody enjoyed!
Birkdale Tower Lodge would also like to say a big thank you to local artist, Robert Newbiggin, for exhibiting two of his fabulous portraits of Dame Vera Lynn and Princess Diana at the Lodge on their special day. Residents all loved admiring the paintings that sparked conversation and brought back many memories, especially as the portrait of Vera Lynn will be gifted to her daughter once complete. The artwork showcase coincided perfectly with Dementia Awareness Week, which the Lodge is supporting through a range of dementia-friendly activities that encourage reminiscence, communication and more.
Birkdale Tower Lodge is delighted to announce that Robert, along with Drawn-by-Rachael, will be supporting their Art Hub initiative, helping to produce artwork and hosting a group art exhibition when it is safe to do so.
Everybody enjoyed coming together to celebrate before rounding off the day with a virtual viewing of Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance, selected by the residents themselves.
The Lodge would like to thank everyone who has supported them over the past year. Everybody is looking forward to making many more fantastic memories in the years to come.
